New purge action approvement mechanism ignores page parameters
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Hi. This week deployment added a new disturbing approving mechanism for purge action. Also, if you use page parameters, it ignores them. For example, if you call an address

<category page http>?action=purge&mode=20

so you can work with convenient category view, it worked until today, and now after the approving it opens the category page without the mode change, and you need to add it manually to the browser address and refresh.
Thank you.

N3: How to reproduce it.

  1. See https://he.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=קטגוריה:קטגוריות_לריקון_מיידי&mode=20 - the category of urgent tracking categories.
  2. It has blue triangles on each category that has something in it (no of these categories do not have subcategories in purpose). This helps me to see if there are broken pages if I can see a blue triangle, without a need to open each one every time.
  3. Press on the "מטמון" ("cache") button at the top of the page. It is a link to https://he.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=קטגוריה:קטגוריות_לריקון_מיידי&action=purge&mode=20
  4. You will be asked if you really want to clear the cache. Approve.
  5. The page you will see after that is https://he.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=קטגוריה:קטגוריות_לריקון_מיידי and not https://he.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=קטגוריה:קטגוריות_לריקון_מיידי&mode=20 as needed and is it was until yesterday.

Thank you.

Steps to reproduce as a list; actual outcome; and expected outcome, all as separate sections, are very welcome. "new disturbing approving mechanism" does not describe the current outcome in a way that someone could easily understand the problem... Thanks.

No problem. give me 5 minutes.
